Color-coded webbing and poles makes for an easy set up.
Great tent from Big Agnes again. Reliable, lightweight, and it keeps you dry at night. Almost no flaws at all. A big thumbs up for this.
I am not a fan of its design. Sometimes zippers can be difficult to zip up and down. You need to take care when you try to close it to avoid destroying it.
The Big House 4 Deluxe Gold has two windows and two doors and a peak center height of 5' 8 which is a little bit bigger than the average height of the 129 different 4 person tents we have looked at. With 60 square feet of space inside, it is a little bit smaller than some other 4-person tents, and it could be a little tight for you and, up to three other campers all through the 3-seasons this tent is approved for. Smaller tents like this one make a very nice choice for people that love spending lots of time outside of their tent exploring.
Something we like about cabin tents is, that the walls of the tent are basically vertical creating a sizeable interior, this allows for much more headroom at the sides inside, making it feel much bigger than other types of tents, they also, have a larger sleeping area making them great for families. Normally cabin tents are used by people going on a camping trip in a car or a truck as they are quite heavy when compared to dome tents. That dose though make them better suited to cooler months.
Down below, you can find a list of the tent's pros and cons.
